Household support fund
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) announced on 24 October 2022, a further round of the Household Support Fund (HSF) grant for Worcestershire to cover the period 1 October 2022 to 31 March 2023. This fund is designed to be used to support households in the most need particularly those including families with children of all ages, pensioners, unpaid carers, care leavers, and people with disabilities who would otherwise struggle with energy bills, food and water bills.
The Household Support Fund (HSF) will provide support to those most in need by providing vouchers or payments to eligible households or making direct provisions to help with food and goods. More information on the Household Support Fund and additional schemes can be found by visiting Worcestershire County Council's website. Additional financial support can also be found on our website.
